in search of information or anyone else researching the surname Marsch.

My 2nd great grandfather "Johan Marsch" born about 1840 Kuusamo Finland. Died 1874 in Calumet, Michigan. Johan and my 2nd great grandmother Greeta Liisa Mursu traveled to the US in the spring of 1873, and he died in the spring of 1874. Greeta was pregnant with my great grandfather, and after the death she married again to a Josef Steirna. They eventually moved to Holmes City, Minnesota.

I have not found any records that confirm Johan death or where he was buried.... nor have I found any records of passports/ship records that they traveled.

Johan's parents: Taneli and Agneeta (Ronkainen) Marsch.
siblings: Vappu, Briita, Liisa, Paavo, Agneta, Anna
